Last week, Sea of Thieves’s major content update Shrouded Spoils hit the high seas, adding a slew of new content to Rare’s piracy sandbox, and today, the devs have released a new video featuring some highlights from livestreams of the new update. Over the course of the video, Design Director Mike Chapman, Community Video Manager Jon McFarlane and Executive Producer Joe Neate crew up with Twitch streamers CaptainAshBacon and CyborgAngel and set sail to discover all that Shrouded Spoils has to offer.

There’s skeleton fort raids, naval warfare, shark attacks, the occasional bit of devious treachery, and of course, plenty of fog on offer, in addition to a whole bunch of cartoonishly huge explosions thanks to the newly added mega-keg. The video, being as it is compiled of various snippets of a much longer stream, defies concise summary, but if you’re interested to see Shrouded Spoils in action and to hear Neate, Chapman, and McFarlane give some behind-the-scenes details about the process of bringing the update to life, you’d do well to check out the full video just below.

All i know about this game is many people mention it but never really say much about it, is it worth picking up?

Maybe. It’s very much got a casual 4funwithfriends vibe/design, the world is pretty beautiful, and the atmosphere/feel of stuff is really really good.

Gameplay-wise though you have a handful of activities you can do that all amount to obtaining things to turn in to build up reputation/currency that gets you cosmetics. Combat is simple and isn’t very hard to master. There is no real character progression beyond raising reputation levels and getting cosmetics.

It’s kind of bipolar in its nature for progression though because it’s insanely grindy and some event content requires you to commit longer sessions (2-4 hours) to get it done.

In general the amount of stuff in the game is better than it was at launch where it was very bare bones, but it’s still not really there yet and if you aren’t motivated by cosmetics/vanity then there’s not really much else there. They shuffle events every 2-4 or so weeks to keep folks playing.

It’s like on one hand it looks and feels great… but then the rest of it feels lacking and like it could be so much more than it currently is.

Hey Thanks! I listen to several podcasts while commuting, and that’s what i repeatedly hear “better than it was at launch” but that’s it, they never elaborate. I’ll grab it at some point, screens look great.

Doesn’t really seem like they added anything notably new, it’s more that they added things to existing pieces of content and brought back Mermaid Statues while adding in fog as a new dynamic.

Awesome. I may load it up again. I don’t think I gave this game a good chance.
